Tottenham and PSG have entered discussions about the possibility of Tanguy Ndombele leaving on loan for the French capital.
On the surface, this is excellent news for Tottenham, who have made their stance clear on the out-of-favour Frenchman. Exiled in training and left completely out of the match day squad against Leicester, Ndombele is on borrowed time with the North London club.
PSG are acutely aware of the situation at Tottenham, handing Mauricio Pochettino‘s side the upper hand in negotiations. PSG want Tanguy on loan until the end of the season with an option to buy. That would give PSG an opportunity to sample the product for a few months before committing long term to the capricious midfielder. PSG are steadfast on making this best-case scenario come to fruition.
And, because of Tottenham’s discernible desperation to offload the Frenchman, PSG have every opportunity of getting exactly what they desire. Not only can a want-away, disgruntled player clinging to life have an adverse effect on the squad, Tottenham are also heavily burdened with their financial commitment to Tanguy.
He is earning £200,000 per week, an astronomical amount when considering his comparatively negligible impact on first-team happenings. The ostracized 25-year-old has played 886 minutes in all competitions, meaning, at this rate, he’s earning over £11,738 per minute, about the same as my earnings for each article published……
All dreaming aside, Spurs are determined to somehow get him off their payroll. While PSG have no qualms about splashing bundles of cash for their desired targets, they’ll do everything in their power to ensure Tottenham contributes to Tanguy’s weekly pay packet.
And based on the current scenario, PSG has every chance of succeeding in their demand. Spurs would rather get some of the extortionate salary paid than none at all, particularly when Antonio Conte has no intention of playing him.
Stuck between Adama Traore‘s bicep and Davinson Sanchez‘s head, Spurs will probably have to make some concessions to get this deal done. Pochettino wants to reunite with his biggest signing gaff, and Tottenham should do everything in their power to make it happen, even if that means making a few monetary concessions.
One can only imagination what PSG’s current valuation is of Tanguy, whose worth has surely plummeted since joining Tottenham for £55.45 million less than three years ago.
